Abstract. This paper deals with the use of Historical Building Information Modelling for digital reconstruction of buildings of rural architecture. The final Building Information Model (BIModel) can be used for research purposes such as Artistic and Historical Research, Building Archaeology Survey, etc., or can be used as basis for building restoration. The aim of the BIModel is to provide a reliable basis for future work.
This paper presents practical experience gained during the implementation of the grant project “The Transformation of Rural Architecture with Emphasis on the Development of the 19th and 20th Centuries”, No. DG16P02H023. In the course of the project, datasets were collected from various sources and various types, usually photo documentation, cadastral maps, metric survey documentation, texts, etc. The interconnection of the datasets had to be ensured for future work. Therefore, solutions were sought to achieve this goal. Usually, complications occurred in sharing and exchanging data formats, georeferencing, selecting of resolution or Level of Detail (LoD), etc. In these cases, software tools and workflows were sought for integration between CAD or GIS, and vice versa.
